Hi all, I am posting this deck to share my success with you all! I went 12-1(was going 10-0) on my first attempt with my control warlock variant. It shuts down aggro and tempo decks, while rin can help you beat the odds against other control decks.
In the Brawliseum, I was faced with a ton of aggro decks - specifically from warlock. I lost my first game to an odd mage, and won the last few matches with my wits.
Here are just a few pictures for validation :)
9-3, hadronox druid got me at the end, but still a good result from me. Thanks for this deck! Btw I added Skulking Geist or Gluttonous Ooze, as mentioned in the comments.
Zilliax is just a heal/removal component I added to the deck because I felt that it fit with the archetype.
While I disagree with the addition of oozes, you may feel free to add weapon removal, skulking geist, or any other heal-variant cards.
It's a nice deck, i made 7-3 on the 1st attempt, on the 2nd I changed the Plated Beetle for a Gluttonous Ooze and made 5-0 so far.
Does rin matter? I don't have it. Any replacements?
Rin is probably the best card to just shove other control decks out of the game. It just provides so much value that the opponents either lose from having to deal with a 2/2-6/6 or they lose because you launch them into fatigue.
There isn't really any other card that has this type of effect and so I'd try to focus more on the faster match ups. Maybe another Plated Beetle or Gluttonous Ooze could do a decent job.
Just add Skulking Geist or Gluttonous Ooze, I only used rin once and lost twice to malygos druid where those cards would have been great.
Also, giant without sunfury isn't that good. The Lich King might be better. But that's just my experience vs a bunch of aggro decks in this brawl.
Went 7-3 with this, only Shudder-shamans stopped me. Everyone else's decks destroyed.
Its funny you mention shudderwock because its the same way in standard. This deck insta loses to shuddershaman, taunt druid, and otk pally which is just unavoidable sometimes. The trade-off is that everything else is easy pickings!
Glad you went 7-3 :)
Haha I know... I was disappointed, but this deck is just good. Good period. Without any of the cards from the recent expansion.
I run this same exact deck in standard too :)
So, what new cards are you using?
Unfortunately with the new expansion supporting discard/ buff lock, there are no new cards I can add to this control-lock that are very good. Besides Demonbolt (which is reeeeally iffy), there is not much that will fit into the deck!
You are very welcomed. It touches my heart that so many of you are doing well with my deck :)
Looks pretty good. Is there any replacement for Lord Godfrey though?
You already have 2 copies Twisting Nether as late game AoE, I'd run the second Mountain Giant
